Playboy in primetime? A new NBC series could see its actors pulling the ‘Full Monty’ on your TV this fall.
NBC’s ‘The Playboy Club’ follows the lives of the bunnies working inside the famed Chicago club in the 1960s, and the men who, well, ogle them. (YouTube/HollywoodStars)
In an attempt to keep the show authentic, Variety reports execs added a “nudity clause” into the actors’ contracts. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that clause got the Parents Television Council riled up.
“The TV watchdog group says the Comcast/NBC merger is to blame for attempts to ‘obliterate any remaining standards of broadcast decency’ because the media company ‘either cannot distinguish between Showtime and broadcast television, or they are choosing to ignore those differences.’”
So, yeah, the show might be a little racy. But Deadline Hollywood argues, your kids shouldn’t be watching anyway – if they even get the chance.
“OK, first NBC has not agreed to air the pilot, it has ordered it for series consideration and will air it only if the project is picked up to series … [and] given it’s setting, a Chicago Playboy club in the 1960s, and its subject matter, The Playboy Club would certainly be a sexy drama that no one envisions as a 8 PM show.”
And the New York Post suggests, if the Parents Television Council wants to get angry at anyone, it should be the actors. They’re the ones who decide if nudity makes the cut.
“The actors, however, can't be forced to shoot nude scenes. If it came to pass that nudity was included, the particular scene in the script must be given to the actor(s), allowing them the opportunity to consent or decline…”
While these clauses are rare, they’ve popped up before. Remember NYPD Blue’s butt-baring days? As gossip blogger Perez Hilton notes, the chance of us seeing anything more than PG on TV is slim.
“We doubt we’ll see anything more than side boob on primetime though because the contract gives 20th Century Fox TV the right to shoot ‘graphic scenes’ to use in DVD versions of the series.”
And comedian Eric Cunningham gives NBC a little something to think about before it has any of the actors drop trou.
“The NBC show, ‘The Playboy Club,’ will include a nudity clause in its contracts, that will allow them to show nudity on the DVD extras. So, uh, feel free to skip the TV show, perverts.”
FYI, the show’s pilot episode features no nudity. NBC will decide whether to pick up the series in May.
